Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) described herein provides new formulas for improved estimation of irregular wave runup on smooth impermeable slopes. The runup guidance is based on the recently introduced wave momentum flux parameter described in CHETN III-67 (Hughes 2003). Sample calculations illustrate application of the formulas.
